“Imperfect people can have perfect moments.” ~ Brandy Halladay  It may not have been to the level of the eight-part series “The Last Dance” on Michael Jordan’s career and the 1998 Chicago Bulls, but ESPN’s “Imperfect: The Roy Halladay Story” was something for baseball fans, albeit a bleak depiction of the superb starting pitcher. The E:60 series’ one-hour documentary spent…

Forty games into the 2011 season and one thing is certain. This Colorado Rockies team is not average.Through the first 20 games of the season, the Rockies were the best team in baseball. Without hitting on all cylinders, the team was finding ways to win and bringing hope to a fan base that has watched the team struggle out of…...

Aaron Cook said it best on Friday night after the Rockies 5-0 loss to Roy Halladay and the Phillies.”We have run into some good pitching,” said Cook. “That happens sometimes in baseball.”That pretty much sums up where the Colorado Rockies currently sit as an organization. The Rockies are a talented bunch, there is little doubt about that. They have the…...

Ugly. Disgusting. Sickening. Those are just a few of the words that can describe a Rockies team that ran into the All-Star break at the exact wrong time. The team that took the field before the break looks nothing like the team that is dawning purple after it. Blame it on being on the road. Blame it on running into…...

The Rockies were in a good spot. They had chased Josh Johnson from the game and had runners on first and third with only one out in the 7th inning. As has been the case far too often in 2010, the Rockies failed to tie the game, despite a Seth Smith bullet up the middle with the bases loaded that…...

Ricky Nolasco is not an easy pitcher to beat. For the Rockies, however, winning on Wednesday night was a big deal. The reason? Starting on Thursday the Rockies face Josh Johnson, then Roy Halladay in Philadelphia on Friday, and there is a strong possibility that the club will be facing Roy Oswalt on Saturday.All indications are pointing to the fact…...

Jeff Francis reminded the Rockies of what they had in 2007.After four mediocre starts in a row, the lefty was on the verge of losing his rotation spot. Instead of giving in to the pressure, Francis put his foot down. He threw seven shutout innings, giving up just three hits. He struck out seven Marlin batters while not giving up…...

Who would have ever thought that the Colorado Rockies would have a pitcher who was writing his name into the history books?The answer to that is most people. However, most people would think that the Rockies pitcher re-writing the history books would be for something bad, like highest ERA after 10 starts, or most home runs given up in a…...

The Dodgers own the Rockies. Plain and simple. There is no other way around it.On Sunday the Rockies had a chance to win a three game series against the Dodgers for the first time since late September of 2007 when the Rockies swept Los Angeles in Chavez Ravine in route to the World Series.Since then, however, the Dodgers have simply…...

On Saturday night, Ubaldo Jimenez lost his bid to become the first Colorado Rockie to win the Cy Young award. What is interesting about it is that Jimenez hasn’t pitched since Wednesday, and won’t pitch until Monday when he squares off against Tim Lincecum and the San Francisco Giants. 2,000 miles away, in Miami, Colorado native Roy Halladay pitched the…...

Wednesday night at Coors Field, Ubaldo Jimenez wrote the latest chapter of a story that looks as if it is going to have a very happy ending.Heading into the game, Jimenez sported a record of 8-1 with an ERA of 0.99, the best in all of baseball. By the end of a 7-3 victory over the Diamondbacks, the lanky right-hander…...

In Seattle, Mariners fans refer to young starting pitcher Felix Hernandez as King Felix.News flash to Mariners fans. Your king has been deposed. With all due respect to Hernandez, who won 19 games in 2009, Ubaldo Jimenez has become the best young pitcher in Major League Baseball. On Thursday Jimenez once again showed his domination, defeating the Astros and Roy…...

Miguel Olivo spoiled Hometown Hero Roy Halladay’s first ever trip to Coors Field.Leading off the bottom of the 10th inning, Olivo hammered a hanging curveball from Chad Durbin deep into the left field seats. The home run capped an incredible day for the catcher, who entered Wednesday mired in a 2-for-28 skid. It was a strange day for Olivo, who,…...

It’s early. There is no denying that. However, with an eighth of the season already complete, it’s not too early to speculate on who will win the postseason awards.My early vote for National League Cy Young is more cut and dry than most. It’s easy. Ubaldo Jimenez. While there is a case for both Tim Lincecum and Colorado’s own Roy…...

It had to happen. At some point Ubaldo Jimenez was going to pick up a loss. However, most figured it would be on a day when the flame throwing Dominican simply didn’t have it. That wasn’t the case on Sunday as Jimenez gave up two hits, one off of his own glove, and lost to the Dodgers 2-0 on the…...

Roy Halladay who?On Tuesday night Ubaldo Jimenez made it clear who the best pitcher in the National League is. He led the Rockies on the mound as the club rolled to a 12-1 victory over the Diamondbacks.On Monday all the national baseball shows could talk about was how good Roy Halladay has been. On Baseball Tonight Bobby Valentine went as…...

The Rockies defeated the Nationals 2-0 on Thursday behind another incredible performance from their budding star Ubaldo Jimenez. Jimenez went 7-1/3 innings, giving up just five hits and keeping his scoreless streak in tact at 17-2/3 innings. It is almost comical to look back into the not-so-distant past to recall fans who were upset at the Rockies front office for…...

A day later the excitement is starting to sink in for Rockies fans. For years Rockies pitchers struggled to throw a complete game shutout, let alone a no-hitter. The Rockies organization for years was about pounding the baseball and winning baseball games with football scores.The no-hitter underscores once again that the organizations decision to build from within was the right…...
